Write a poem using the title and three nouns you’ve been given.
Length: Between 5-25 lines
Rules: Your three nouns have to be in separate lines. That’s it!
Due: Thursday, April 30th, anytime!
Have fun and let the title take you somewhere different. It’s kind of amazing the places our brains can go when we’re given a little something from someone else’s brain. See the nouns you’ve been given. Really see them: how they feel, smell, sound, look, and let them take shape in your imagination. Instead of trying to make the poem happen, just let it. Try the music page if you haven’t yet!
